    I am wondering if you have found a solution to this. Any success running new wires? I was also wondering if you have tried to use the cd changer input? I have the diagrams but don't know what the symbols rockford uses for the cd changer cable pinouts mean. Thanks in advance

I am going to try adding more wires to the harness... If you open the deck, and read the board near the harness, it has auxL, aux G, auxR. I am going to try it on mine, as i have a backup unit if it goes to shit. I'll probably post my results on the fosgate forums, where people know what they are doing...

Also, I have the rfx-8320, with my old 8220 faceplate which works perfect. they did not change much if at all from 82xx-83xx. It gives you more options for parts. ;)

Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?

Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

IPOD hook up to receiver

The problem is the phono hookup, which is not a standard line-level input. Phono is only appropriate for a turntable (record player)

Plug the ipod into any other input, and you'll be all set.

If this helps, be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!

Hi is there any way I can hook up my I pod to this

Does it have an aux or CD input jacks at the back? if it does you can get a Docking Station. These have two RCA phono plugs to plug in. Or you can get a 3.5 headphone jack with two RCA plugs and put it in the headphone socket of the IPod.

I want to connect my ipod to the aux inputs on back of unit

Hello gcd_sun,

The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.

The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.

To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.

Hope this helps.

Ipod input for sa-eh760

You can plug the Ipod into the mic input , to do test recording. But the result wont be great.

To listen the Ipod in your stereo you should plug the Ipod into the Auxiliary input on the stereo.

Naturally you do not need any dvd.

Here is the adapter: 1.5M 3.5mm Male to Male AV Audio RCA Y Adapter

No matter what I do, I can't hook up my Ipod dock to the Denon 397 receiver I just bought.

The receiver is the DRA 397 model. I don't have a solution yet. If anyone does, I'd appreciate it!!

There is no IP-BUS plug on the back of this model radio, nor is there a 3.5mm heaphone jack for auxillary input. The only way possible is through a wired FM Modulator.

My suggestion would be to replace the head unit. This model is a very inexpensive unit ($100retail) and can be replaced with a unit that is similar in features but with the addition of ipod input. You can get a radio with direct ipod control and charging for less than $150! Hope this was helpful.

How to hook up an ipod to my '07 Tacoma radio

There won't be a direct plug that will work, but you do have 2 options.

1. An aftermarket iPod interface module. Try PAC, Peripheral, or USA Spec. They may have one for your vehicle that will give you a direct audio in, as well as charging and possibly iPod control from the head unit.

2. A hardwired FM modulator. This would plug in through the car's antenna at the back of the radio, and you will probably find that it gives much better sound quality than the wireless FM modulators you've been using.

Hooking up ipod

THe easiest way to hook an iPod or any other personal audio player to almost any audio receiver is to pick up a cable having a stereo miniplug (like the plug on your earbuds) on one end, and two RCA plugs on the other end. You should be able to get this cable from almost any electronics or discount store for under $10. The miniplug goes in the iPod's earphone jack, and the RCA plugs connect to an unused input on your receiver. Inputs marked "AUX" or "CD" are a good choice, or even a "TAPE" input. Set the iPod to about 3/4ths volume and adjust the receivers controls for desired volume.
